Looking forward to the future

From this documentary produced in the 1920s: “In recent years we have seen enormous changes. The Great War (1914-1918) was the war to end all wars. Thanks to everlasting peace and prosperity, the 20th century looks bright! … No one can clearly foresee the city of the future, but the appearance of any city in any period of history is a direct outcome of the social, economic, and typical conditions then existing. The city of the future would be laid out to a master plan. Streets and buildings, no longer haphazard, would be harmoniously related.”
